South Dakota regulators OK permit for wind farm construction

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) South Dakota regulators have approved a permit for construction of a wind farm in the northeastern part of the state.

The South Dakota Public Utilities Commission approved a permit with conditions Tuesday to build the Crowned Ridge Wind Farm.

The proposed wind farm will cover more than 53,000 acres in Grant and Codington counties. The project will be capable of producing as much as 300 megawatts of energy from up to 130 wind turbines.

Northern States Power Co., doing business as Xcel Energy, will purchase energy produced by the wind farm.
